So no, a port isn’t planned.
After Gearbox Software announced that Borderlands 3 likely wouldn’t be on the Nintendo Switch due to size constraints, it was Titanfall 2 senior designer Mohammad Alavi who denied the possibility of the multiplayer shooter ever being ported.
Speaking to Drunk Tech Review on YouTube, Alavi noted that despite personally liking the console, it wouldn’t be receiving third-party support because it’s “so underpowered”. Alavi was asked whether Titanfall would arrive on the Switch, to which he replied, “F**k no! No, you’re not going to be able to fit Titanfall 2 on the Nintendo Switch.”
This has been the usual story for Nintendo hardware according to Alavi even as the company caters to handheld users and “the kids”.
Alavi has a point. Even Electronic Arts’ next iteration of FIFA will be a “custom” version built for Switch, most likely because it won’t be able to handle the same version released on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. What are your thoughts on the Switch’s power? Let us know below.
